Frontenac Fury Midget C Girlsby Sue Hitchcock
The Frontenac Fury Midget C girls participated in the OWHA (Ontario Women’s Hockey Association) Ontario Provincial Championships this past weekend in Mississauga, Ontario. Sixteen midget “C” teams, including the Fury, took part in the weekend tournament that included Novice, Atom, Pee Wee, Bantam and Midget age players.
Thousands of young women from all over Ontario represented their hometowns, hoping to bring home gold. Our girls did not bring home the gold, but played like true champions!
“Who would have guessed that 10 girls from Piccadilly would make it to Provincials?” said Margo Sortberg, mother of Erica Sortberg, team captain. “We are so proud of the team’s accomplishments this season,” added Kevin Hitchcock, head coach. “This was the last time five of the team members will play hockey together. I think there were a few tears in the change room after our final game.”
Throughout the entire tournament there was no more than a five-goal difference between the winning and losing teams in all four pools. All teams were strong and evenly matched. “Our girls should be proud of how well they played, and how well they represented the Frontenac Girls Hockey Association with class and dignity,” said Mark Hollingsworth, assistant coach.
Congratulations, girls, from the coaching staff and your proud parents.
